I figured I'd post some pics that I am taking of my most recent project. I had a split in the starboard keel that needed to be repaired and I plan to also add some new glass while I am at it. Feel free to comment, question, and critique:

The following link includes photos that show the process for gluing in a backing piece of fiberglass to the inside of the keel.

Very creative making the inside piece. I have had good luck using jelled or thickened resin. Squeegee the resin into a piece of cloth on a piece of wax paper and then transfer to repair. Once that hardens it is easy to build up using 1" and 2" wide fiberglass cloth tape. Making it look pretty is always the hard part.

cheers
Bill
